BayBio Lunch & Learn: Putting Your Best Foot Forward for an M&A Exit, Financing or Significant Partnership

In collaboration with
Arnold Porter

To maximize the likelihood of a successful exit requires that companies evaluate key deal execution and valuation issues on a regular basis. Rather than wait until a potential acquirer, investor or strategic partner identifies something as a deal-threatening red flag, learn how you can build value in anticipation of “the big deal.”

At this Lunch & Learn, corporate life science attorneys who have a seen more than a fair share of diligence “gotchas,” as both inside and external counsel, will share key lessons learned, including:

  • Academic Hangovers – burdensome and vague obligations in licenses from universities and inventors – how to deal with problem legacies and key assets encumbrances created in the early days
  • Securities Conundrums – tricky structuring issues in private placement financings, especially PIPE transactions
  • JOBS Concerns – risks in shareholder relations management, particularly in light of the Jobs Act
  • Missing Pieces – what to do about product development rights given away to third parties, either intentionally or by accident
  • Keeping your Asset Intact – advice on deals to co-promote, divide commercialization by geography, or concerning future development rights.
  • Aiming for the Right Indication – considerations around how to preserve flexibility in clinical focus so that product development aims for maximum value
  • CRO Challenges – how to structure your CRO relationships for success
